Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Bonnie Marie Smith

"My work is inspired and informed by myth, dreams, and symbols. Most often I explore in my art themes of home, childhood, loss, nature, and the feminine experience. In these small sculptures, I work intuitively to reveal something of the inner world of each figure. Each piece is made of fired earthenware or porcelain clay with applied glazes, stains, paints, and the occasional found object"

Born in western NY state, I grew up on the family farm where I spent most of my early years in the woods and fields, exploring, developing a rich inner life, and drawing everything around me. My passion is for making things.

After taking a class in ceramics at college, I fell in love with clay and went on to graduate with a BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in Alfred, NY. Since that time I have worked in the field of decorative painting while continuing to develop my art through ceramics, collage, drawing and painting.

I have exhibited in various group and solo shows in the US and Europe. Currently, I'm showing at the Mindy Solomon Gallery in St. Petersberg, Florida.

I live and work in Kingston, NY."
